    LANSING, MI - The Michigan Senate on Thursday passed legislation requiring able-bodied Michigan Medicaid recipients to work 29 hours per week to continue receiving health insurance.

    Michigan expanded Medicaid in 2013 with the Healthy Michigan program, which now insures 683,769 people, according to the Michigan Department of Health and Human Services.

    Senate Bill 897, sponsored by Sen. Mike Shirkey, R-Clark Lake, would require able-bodied Medicaid recipients to work 29 hours per week in order to continue receiving Medicaid. People would be exempt from the requirements if they met certain criteria, like being over 64, having a disability, being pregnant, or being a caretaker for a dependent with a disability or family member under the age of six.

    Bill requiring Michiganders to work for Medicaid clears Senate
    --------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    What if they can't find a job, we do not have an over abundance of jobs in MI. Isn't that what Walmart does, hire part time so they don't have to pay for health ins.

    No healthcare if not:

    This is so the elites do not have to pay taxes. Well if you are frail or disabled , pg you do not need to. Crap I hope people can find work.

    The can start to offer slave wages to get health ins. Part of the plan. I mean I agree an able bodied person should look for work , his job is to find a job or go to school, but to not have healthcare, I mean this is the beginning of slave labor, 100% employment and slave wages.

    If you can't find a job working 29 hours a week then you're a fucking loser. It's that simple. God forbid we'd require someone to put forth some effort to collect their hand out off the backs of others busting their ass to make a living.

    The elites will end up paying their ER visits instead. Penny wise and pound foolish.

    Last I checked, slaves don't typically get wages, but cool story, though.
